The sign above the door to The Gainsborough Arms promises a warm welcome, and that’s exactly what this enchanting pub delivers. Upon entering, guests are immediately struck by the friendly ambience, and decor that blends modern comfort and traditional charm. The current owners took over in 2018 and have transformed the pub into a real community hub, with an emphasis on beautifully presented homemade fare and local real ale. For those looking to stay in the area, there are also several attractive guest bedrooms where a good night’s sleep is guaranteed.

We visited for supper and were spoilt for choice. The regularly changing menu showcased a wealth of popular homemade classics. I decided on a delectable homemade pie filled with succulent beef and rich sauce, topped with gorgeous shortcrust pastry. My wife selected the New York chicken – tender chicken breast smothered with bacon and melted cheese in a tangy barbecue sauce. Our meal was perfectly complemented by fruity glasses of house red. We finished by sharing a bowl of fruit crumble which achieved the perfect balance of sweet and tart, with an excellent crunchy topping. The Gainsborough Arms also serves a generous Saturday breakfast and a popular Sunday carvery, and we can’t wait to come back to sample them.
